Sandy Creek Alumnus Named 2021 Rhodes Scholar

Sandy Creek alumna Phaidra Buchanan was named a 2021 Rhodes Scholar. She attended Flat Rock Middle School, and graduated as valedictorian of Sandy Creek's 2017 Class.

Phaidra declined a scholarship offer from Harvard to accept a University of Georgia Foundation Fellowship, UGA's highest undergraduate student award. Phaidra is currently at the University of Georgia studying Social Studies Education. 
 
Thirty-two Rhodes awards are allotted to the United States yearly; roughly 3,000 candidates are nominated by their colleges and universities. Thus, for every 100 applicants, one is selected. We are so proud of this Patriot! Read more about Phaidra's amazing accomplishments here
